With Joe Biden falling to second place in several polls behind Elizabeth Warren and Hunter Biden back in the news, it seems it was time Friday for the Biden campaign to break the glass and hit the emergency switch:

We all know that Biden loves to invoke Barack Obama — in the debates, whenever he was cornered with a tough question about the previous administration’s policies, like deportation, Biden was always quick to remind the audience that he was just the vice president, and it was Obama in the Oval Office. So he happily throws Obama under the bus when the heat is on but posts photos like this one when his campaign looks to be in trouble.

Does Biden even realize he’s competing in a field of candidates who all seem to remember President Obama as being too moderate? Socialism’s what’s hot now.
